NH House Bill 2's Divisive Concepts
Informational Zoom Session

You are invited to join Allyson Ryder from UNH’s Community, Equity and Diversity office to discuss the new regulations in place as they relate to the NH House Bill 2's “divisive concepts”, review the guidance offered by the state and the University System of NH, and discuss how these changes impact your efforts in the classroom and other areas of the university.  This will be an interactive session to answer questions and consider approaches and responses to potential classroom, lab and additional situations.

UNH Land, Water, and Life Acknowledgement

As we all journey on the trail of life, we wish to acknowledge the spiritual and physical connection the Pennacook, Abenaki and Wabanaki Peoples have maintained to N’dakinna (homeland) and the aki (land), nebi (water), olakwika (flora) and awaasak (fauna), which the University of New Hampshire community is honored to steward today. We also acknowledge the hardships they continue to endure after the loss of unceded homelands and champion the university’s responsibility to foster relationships and opportunities that strengthen the well-being of the Indigenous People who carry forward the traditions of their ancestors.
